World AIDS Day 2018
15 Years of Saving Lives through American Leadership and Generosity
December 1st marks the 30th World AIDS Day commemoration. This year, the U.S. government’s World AIDS Day theme is “15 Years of Saving Lives through American Leadership and Generosity.”
Across PEPFAR’s 15 years of existence, with strong bipartisan support across three U.S. presidents and eight U.S. congresses, the U.S. has saved more than 17 million lives, prevented millions of new HIV infections, transformed the global AIDS response, and created the roadmap to controlling the HIV pandemic. PEPFAR has brought the HIV pandemic from crisis toward control and replaced death and despair with hope and life.
